3 All:
5 Since revdep-rebuild is no longer being maintained by the original
6 author, I volunteered to work on updating and maintaining the script.
8 I have finished the first version of what I hope to be the next release
9 of the script and I would like to have it tested by a wider audience to
10 discover any issues or problems.
12 If you are interested, please do the following:
14 emerge -pv gentoolkit and make sure that you are running
15 app-portage/gentoolkit-0.2.0_pre8, if you are not please install that
16 version of gentoolkit.
18 Secondly, go to and read
19 comment #2 which documents the changes that I've made to the script.
20 Then download the script from bugzilla and use it like you would
21 normally use revdep-rebuild.
23 Finally, if you note any problems or issues, please add them as comments
24 to bug# 62644.
26 I would prefer that any questions about usage or functionality be asked
27 as a reply to the thread in gentoo-user so that I can respond in public
28 for others to see.
30 Regards,
31 Paul Varner
